Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Male
Not accepting new patients. Please call 1-888-956-1616.
Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice.
I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues and members, and I look forward to working with you to care for your health. I was born and raised in sunny Southern California. I went to the Boston area for college but was happy to return to California for medical school and my residency. I have been with Kaiser Permanente for over 30 years. My wife was born in the Philippines, and we have three wonderful daughters.
I feel that healthy living and preventive care are the best ways to stay healthy, but I am also here to help you when you are sick. I want to be your partner in health, and it helps me better care for you when you are actively involved in taking care of your health.
I consider exercise to be important for good health, and I hope that you do, too. I take a 25-minute walk at noon whenever I can, and I workout at my local YMCA two days a week. I enjoy snow skiing in the winter and my family takes an annual backpack trip into the High Sierra every August. I read the journal Nature and am interested in all current science news.
